I bought this lovely cotton tape a little while ago. I liked the idea of a pullover for spring that would be knit sideways, that is, from cuff to cuff.
This is lovely stuff to knit with and the knitting goes really fast. I had half a sleeve done when I decided that although the design was good, it would be soooo much better with
an interesting sleeve detail, maybe some openwork, since it is a warm-weather sweater and all. With help from my stitch dictionary I swatched a few ideas for the sleeve top and finally came up with this ladder effect. Simple. Nice. Just what was needed to punch things up a bit. So I ripped out the first try and began again.
But, gorgeous weather is on the way (right???) and I hope to be wearing this one very soon.
